Intel in Apple Computer

appleHeard a romour, Apple Computer consider using a Intel CPU in their machine. Personally I don't think is a good idea to give out PowerPC, consumer will have less choice, but I think if Apple can release a x86 version of their MacOS X, that will be great(which they don't have any plan right now), especially before Microsoft Longhorn is out. Technically OS X is portable to x86 platform, the kernel (Drawin) is already available, porting Quartz (the UI engine) just need a good graphic driver will do. Apple developer is good enough to do such a job. Can't wait to see OSX to run on x86 platform one day in the future!
